Reversible blades, two sizes makes removing stumps a breeze

by

To plane away nuisance or unwanted stumps, Danuser Machine Company’s new stump auger product might just come in handy.

Kara Oosterhuis caught up with Glenn Danuser about the easy-to-use product at Farm Progress Show back in August.

The new stump auger works on the premise that if you have a hydraulic auger drive, you can use a stump auger to chew through wooden stumps to get them below grade, says Danuser.

The new product comes in 10-inch and 16-inch diameters.

“To operate the 10 inch diameter you need an auger drive with about 1,700 foot-pounds of torque,” says Danuser. “In order to effectively use the 16-inch, you’ll need foot-pounds of 3,000 or greater.”

The large cutting blades are reversible, for more cutting life.

The 10-inch diameter auger weighs 50 pounds, and the 16 inch weighs 70 pounds. “They’re pretty beefy,” says Danuser as the stump augers are made of solid-centre, solid-fixed steel. Once the point is threaded into the stump, Danuser says to let the machine float and let the auger chew through.

Both diameters have two-inch hex collars and Danuser does offer an adapter for round to hex.
